Prelude to Cancer Sun & Aquarius Moon


Sun is the planet of self, soul, vitality, energy, mentality, courage, general intelligence, spirituality, accomplishments, etc.

Cancer is the 4th sign of the zodiac belt which is gentle, tender, affectionate, unconditionally loving, caring, emotional, protective, and sentimental in nature.

First of all, as these natives are sentimental, they pay attention to most of the things around them. They are also highly intuitive which gives them the ability to notice even the smallest changes in people, the environment, etc.

even though this is a sensitive trait, it serves Cancer Sun natives well. That is because their high sensitivity and intuition give them the ability to make themselves aware of the truth around them.

Their intuition works in a positive direction because Sun is dignified and strong in the sign of its friend Moon, which is Cancer.

Accordingly, these traits become important protective factors which are tremendously important. The importance is that they help to protect their highly tender, gentle, and sensitive souls.

Speaking of which, they are able to protect their gentle souls effectively because Sun is a natural malefic planet. Sun gives them enough strength, vitality, as well as courage in order to confront adversities.

Cancer is of cardinal modality which denotes the ability to initiate, take action, and lead. Sun is the planet of kingship and ruler of the royal sign Leo also signifies leadership.

Accordingly, the combination of Sun and cardinal modality traits endow these natives with exceptional natural leadership skills and abilities.

Their intuition also amplifies their leadership abilities because it makes them especially aware of their surroundings.

Their high consciousness and awareness, in turn, gives them the ability to make decisions based on lots of information. As a result, their decisions are usually very effective and promote positive outcomes.

Moon is the planet that governs the mind and therefore signifies general thinking patterns, emotional well-being, and cognitive abilities.

Aquarius is the 11th sign of the zodiac belt which is ingenious, eccentric, intellectual, humanistic, creative, generous, tolerant, and materialistically independent but socially dependent in nature.

First of all, when the mind becomes influenced by the 11th zodiac sign Aquarius, a very unique and independent mindset is created.

Aquarius Moon individuals are often noticed for their ability to think outside the box. Aquarius, the 11th sign is known for its diverting or constantly expanding effect.

Hence, their thoughts constantly diverge which to consider a variety of aspects and details. This is what ultimately drives them to create novel and unconventional ideas as well as solutions.

When they put these ideas into action, they are capable of producing ingenious creations which can help themselves as well as their communities in many ways.

During the process of diverting their thought processes, they expand their intellect and knowledge base. Hence, they are usually very knowledgeable and intelligent.

Because of that, they have a tendency to communicate endlessly as they always incline to dive deep into topics.

They must find companies or communities which consist of people with similar mentality in order to harness the desire to communicate endlessly productively.

Cancer Sun & Aquarius Moon Disposition

Planetary Relationship

When Sun is in Cancer while Moon is in Aquarius, the 8th and 6th dispositions are created between these planets.

More specifically, Aquarius Moon is in the 8th sign from Cancer Sun. When taking Moon as the reference point, then Cancer Sun is in the 6th sign from it.

According to the temporary relationship rule of astrology, planets occupying the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th, and 12th place from each other are temporary friends.

When it comes to the dispositions between Cancer Sun and Aquarius Moon, temporary enmity is created. However, as Sun and Moon are natural friends according to astrology, then the effects from the temporary enmity do not last long.

That is because when temporary enmity is combined with natural friendship, a neutral relationship is formed. It also means that there are often dual outcomes of the struggles arising from the temporary enmity.

As the conflict arises between Sun, which signifies the soul, and Moon, which signifies the mind, the struggles usually begin internally.

That is to say, the intuition, gut feelings, and belief systems are not always in full accordance with the mindset or thinking patterns.

When analyzing Cancer Sun and Aquarius Moon from a deeper perspective, the possible causes of the internal struggle can be revealed.

Namely, as elaborated earlier, Cancer Sun provides a very tender and sensitive soul which increases the protective layer. This also means that Cancer Sun individuals barely let anyone into their friend zone as it is very hard for them to build real trust.

As a result, most of their communication remains superficial for a prolonged time. This is very hindering for the mind given by Aquarius Moon which is highly dependent on frequent deep conversations.

This is where their inner struggle begins. They must make a lot of compromises and put in lots of effort to build trust with people before diving into deep conversations with them.

As mentioned earlier, the effects of temporary enmity do not last long. In fact, the delays caused by it can sometimes have positive outcomes.

When taking the aforementioned situation as an example, the delay caused by overprotectiveness and dubiousness helps to filter out negative and selfish people and open up to truly dignified and honest people.

8th & 6th Dispositions Analysis

The 8th disposition represents the malefic 8th astrological house which signifies uncertainty, hidden matters, fears, sudden events, calamities, etc.

Religious truth & wisdom to bless your life

Keep repenting and repeating secretly in mind: "God is enough for me and I bear witness that there is no other worthy of worship than the Almighty Creator alone" for the joy and abundance of God to flow in.
(Surat al-Baqarah 2:163)

Whoever makes the Hereafter (aims for piety & righteousness to attain salvation) his/her goal, Allah (english: God) makes his/her heart rich, and organizes his/her affairs, and the world comes to him/her whether it wants to or not.
(Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2465)

And God is the most merciful and loving. The God Almighty said: By My might and majesty, I will continue to forgive them, as long as they seek My forgiveness.
(Musnad Aḥmad 11237)

And God protects the faithul more than a caring Mother protects her child.
(Sahih al-Bukhari 5999)

Do not perform idolatry, impiety, disrespect for parents. Never endanger lives (saving one life is like saving whole humanity). Do not commit theft, adultery, false witness (disregard all cruel conspiracies towards innocent believers), and do not envy.
(Surat al-An’am 6:151-153)

The Messenger of God [PBUH] used to stress charity in his sermons, and prohibit mutilation. But protect truth and believers at all costs.
(Sunan an-Nasa'i 4047)

There must be no racism, sects, tribes, or gangs amongst you, and take special care of women, and increased rewards get those who educate women especially who suffer in calamities.
(The Last Sermon, Riyad as-Salihin 278)

Holy Prophet [PBUH] raised the status of and established legal rights for women which were never present before, and protected them from harassment, and stressed duty and good treatment to mother. Also, completely prohibited injustice towards girl-children (unjust people used to get rid of them for financial reasons).

(Sahih al-Bukhari 3446, Al-Adab Al-Mufrad 5, al-Baqarah 2:228)

All people are practically beleivers if they believe in one God, The Prophets (some of them: Solomon, Moses, Jesus) and The Seal of Prophets (Muhammad) peace be upon them. That is, do not be quick to judge and leave judgment to God except when there is direct threat to righteous beleivers.

Muhammad [PBUH] was most akin to Jesus [PBUH], who is coming back, and the best of people will be under protection of Jesus [PBUH].
(Riyad as-Salihin 1808)

Some of The Last Words of God via The Last Prophet [PBUH]

Positively, it signifies sudden improvements, transformations, unexpected gains, knowledge of hidden matters, ability to understand complex or clueless things, etc.

Aquarius Moon becomes endowed with the 8th disposition from Sun. This shows that the mindsets of these individuals are extremely deep and complex.

They are able to understand life from a deep perspective and also possess knowledge of how various mechanisms are put together into well functioning holistic form that makes various matters in daily life flow.

Because of such deep knowledge, such individuals are well capable of prospering in activities where they work secretly or without clues where they must figure out the whole system by themselves.

As the 8th house signifies, they are also able to feel and understand various hidden energies. Hence, their mindset is largely supported by strong intuition.

However, the deep and dark energies of the 8th disposition also affect the mind negatively. As it is the darkest house, it is most frightening to the planet Moon, which is strong while being fully illuminated.

In fact, Moon is fallen in the 8th zodiac sign for the same reason which is that it dislikes uncertainty and being in the state of unknowingness.

Accordingly, Aquarius Moon and Cancer Sun individuals often feel frightened and anxious without apparent reason.

In extreme cases, where Saturn (guide of Aquarius Moon) and Moon are weak, they might develop paranoia and become over-protective even when there are no provoking factors around them.

As Sun is dignified and usually strong (when devoid of malefic influence) in Cancer, it indicates that there can be positive outcomes from the 8th disposition.

Namely, they develop strong intuition that manifests as an extra protective layer to their gentle souls which helps them to understand the hidden motives of other people.

It also means that instead of being unnecessarily paranoid, they gather actual data first and then make conclusions with the logic of their minds.

The 6th disposition represents the malefic 6th astrological house which signifies quarrels, disputes, conflicts, litigation, battles, wars, competition, challenges, enemies, oppositions, etc.

Positively, it signifies the ability to compete, overcome challenges, and lead a disciplined lifestyle. It also signifies coworkers and the ability to form alliances to overcome greater obstacles and enemies.

Cancer Sun becomes endowed with the energies of this disposition. First of all, as Sun is a natural malefic planet, its association with the cruel 6th energies shows being extremely aggressive and confrontational in all most matters.

In Vedic astrology, an association of the natural malefic planet Sun with the energies of the malefic house is auspicious because it endows necessary traits, such as assertiveness, straightforwardness, and strong competitive powers in order to deal with opponents directly and valorously.

The malefic and sacrificing 12th disposition of Cancer Sun from its own sign Leo increases the aforementioned effects. It is because the 12th disposition makes them sacrificial, selfless, and charitable. This proves that when they become angry, then for the purest reason and strictly seriously.

Hence, they put all their strengths, skills, and powers into action in order to overcome challenges and enemies. With that being said, their enemies shall run for cover when this happens.

Phases of Moon

Cancer Sun combined with Aquarius Moon gives the possibility of formation of the Waning Gibbous lunar phase.

Waning Gibbous

This phase forms right after the full Moon. When a full Moon denotes worldly life and social success, then the Waning Gibbous lunar phase denotes leaving the spotlight and being active behind the scenes.

Theoretically, this phase provides both good and bad results to Aquarius Moon. On the one hand, it makes expressing the energies of sociable Aquarius more difficult because this lunar phase favors working behind the scenes and society.

On the other hand, the uniqueness and eagerness to keep expanding knowledge favors success in working behind the scenes and society. That is because all mechanisms that make things moving and working actually require the deepest wisdom which these natives usually have.

The unusual mindsets of Aquarius Moon natives also adapt to the mysterious environments that this lunar phase is able to offer them.

In some cases, Aquarius Moon individuals are able to fulfill their thirst for communication through communities that also work behind the scenes.

The members of these communities can work for instance in the police department as forensic scientists. Hence, Cancer Sun Aquarius Moon natives have the necessary traits to prosper in hidden networks.

Cancer Sun & Aquarius Moon Panchang – Astrological Diary

Tithi – Vedic Lunar Day

In Vedic sidereal astrology, there is a very precise lunar phase system used in which the whole cycle of the Moon is divided into 30 tiny sectors. Each of these sectors represents a specific lunar day.

Each day, in turn, is represented by a specific supremacy and planet which reveals important significances and deep effects.

Sun and Moon can be in different degrees in Cancer and Aquarius respectively which creates the possibility of the formation of various Vedic lunar days.

In this article, 3 possible Vedic lunar days formed by Cancer Sun and Aquarius Moon are elaborated.

Krishna Dwitiya

Krishna Dwitiya is the 17th lunar day and the 2nd part of the Waning Moon phase. This lunar day is characterized by Mangala Prada which is the provider of auspicious effects.

Individuals born on this lunar day always strive towards promoting auspicious outcomes with their decisions, actions, and efforts.

With the difficult 6th and 8th dispositions, they might seem suspicious because of their secretive and aggressive attitude.

However, with the dignified Sun and energies of this lunar day, even their strictest and harshest behavioral patterns are usually driven by good intentions.

Krishna Tritya

Krishna Tritya is the 18th lunar day and the 3rd part of the Waning Moon phase. The 18th lunar day is characterized by Bala Prada which is the giver of strength, power, and durability.

Individuals born on this lunar day are usually blessed with increased physical and mental strength which helps them to cope with life in a better way.

The strength given by this lunar day amplifies the effects of the 6th disposition. As a result, they become extremely competitive and strong which makes them extremely valorous and victorious.

With a dignified Cancer Sun, such individuals are strongly inclined to harness all their strength and vitality in order to support or maintain domestic traditions and societal norms.

Their physical, as well as mental durability, makes them stand out from the crowd which makes them perfect for tasks that require maintenance or protection of something.

Krishna Chaturthi

Krishna Chaturthi is the 19th lunar day and the 4th part of the Waning Moon phase. This lunar day is characterized by Khala Prada which signifies cruelty and wickedness.

Individuals born on this lunar day have naturally increased aggression and harsh attitude. This lunar day increases the malefic effects of the 6th and 8th disposition.

In other words, their suspicious nature and quarrelsome traits are amplified. It is crucial for them to find as moral outputs for these traits as possible. By doing this, they can feel proud of their secretive, disputatious, and cunning nature and remain moral at the same time.

They are especially competent in services that involve obstructing the path of something or someone. Hence, it is good to harness this competence in activities where immoral people are being stopped.

Cancer Sun & Aquarius Moon Yoga

Another important astrological combination formed by Sun and Moon with respect to each other is Nitya Yoga.

Sun and Moon are luminaries and thus the primary indicators of the personality of a person.

The distance or exact degrees between these luminaries create a specific Yoga that gives deeper insight into the soul and mind of a person.

This is why Cancer Sun combined with Aquarius Moon people are not all the same and still have differences in their mentalities and general behaviors.

There is a total of 27 Nitya Yoga combinations and when Cancer Sun combines with Aquarius Moon, there is a possibility of the formation of many different variations.

In this article, we shall learn about 3 possible Nitya Yoga combinations that can be formed by the placements of Sun and Moon in the mentioned zodiac signs.


Ayushman is the 3rd Sun-Moon combination which is governed by the South Node of the Moon, Ketu. Ayushman provides auspicious results.

Ketu is the astrological entity that is very intuitive, hot-tempered, sudden, spiritual, and selfless in nature. These traits describe individuals born with Ayushman Yoga well.

When making decisions, these individuals tend to rely more on their instincts, gut feelings, and intuition. These are great support for the emotional and spiritual Cancer Sun and mysterious 8th disposition.

The combination of the abovementioned astrological indicators shows that these natives are effective at making quick decisions based on their inner feelings and emotions.

Negatively, the malefic 6th and 8th dispositions in combination with the sudden Ketu makes these natives very hot-tempered.

Their decisions are often unexpected and can leave their surroundings confused. That is because their decisions are often based on hidden information that others are unable to understand at first glance.


Saubhagya is the 4th Sun-Moon combination which is governed by the natural benefic planet Venus. Saubhagya is a benefic Yoga.

Venus is the planet of beauty, arts, and love. Therefore, first of all, such individuals have great respect for arts, beauty, and design. It is highly possible they integrate their affection towards beauty in their daily activities including profession.

They are also skilled in romanticizing their ideas or explaining them in a way that is acceptable for the public. It makes them fortunate and provides them with societal support. With that being said, they speak a lot using words that radiate positivity, auspiciousness, and virtue.


Shobhana is the 5th Sun-Moon Yoga combination which is governed by the natural malefic planet Sun. Shobhana is an auspicious Yoga.

Individuals born with this Yoga are splendid and charming in nature just like the bright Sun. They are fond of being recognized and appraised.

With a dignified Cancer Sun, they become renowned for their humble, selfless, and sacrificing nature. Others trust them and find moral comfort through these natives. A dignified Sun also shows that they use their fame for pious purposes.

Dignified Sun forming Shobhana Yoga indicates that these natives have a natural desire to lead a moral and virtuous lifestyle.
